The Route (Route Map (PDF))
The route is predominantly in the forest on soft sandy or flat grass tracks – there are no gates and no road work but the B1106 is crossed. There is no talk round for this route but detailed maps are available for each competitor and instructions for crews as to how to get to crew points.
It is essential that crewing only takes place in designated crew points and that the rider’s number is displayed at all times on the dash board. There should be NO crew vehicles in the forest other than in the areas for them to park while crewing. Failure to adhere to this may result in the rider being eliminated. All slosh bottles must be picked up by the crew at the crew points.
